Jose Mourinho concerned after injuries to John Terry and Ramires against Maccabi Tel Aviv


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says defender John Terry and midfielder Ramires will today be assessed to understand for how long they will be ruled out of action.

The Brazilian did not even start the game after suffering an injury during training and the Englishman was forced out of the game in the 72nd minute of the game.

The Portuguese was also full of praise for the hosts as he explained that they didn't deserve to lose by such a big margin.

"The result is too nice to us, Maccabi did not deserve a 4-0 defeat," Mourinho said.

"They competed well in the second half with 10 men and resisted for a long time. They had a shot for goal when Begovic saved from Zahavi which was a great hand from our goalkeeper so the result was too much for them.

"We played very well in the first half but the pitch didn't help. Only that stopped us playing better and cost us more goals. It was difficult to finish some of the actions which were beautiful.

"The second half for the first 15 to 20 minutes we slept, we were over confident and were waiting for the second goal to come. Only when we felt we were in danger did we have a good reaction.

"There are no doubts about the victory and the three points but Maccabi deserved something more than they got.

"I said in an interview before the match that such a beautiful stadium and such a fantastic public deserve a better surface because it was bad and dangerous.

"We tried to protect ourselves by only training a little bit on it but to my surprise Maccabi trained on it after us, plus there was the warm-up before the game, so the pitch was really bad.

"Ramires slid and had a muscular injury and John has an ankle problem that we don't know yet the damage.

"The score was 1-0 when John left the pitch and for that to happen, I know already that he is in trouble.

"My medical department is really good and John is a professional guy with a special desire to recover but to leave the pitch with the result 1-0, I don't believe too much that he can play at Tottenham on Sunday."
